Farmer Henry

My husband, son and I live in a little estate in a small village in Co. Cork.  Our house backs on to a farmer's field, and if my son Henry stands in his crib and looks out the window, he sometimes will catch the farmer tending the crop in his tractor.  This has triggered a tractor *obession* with Henry, the first word out of his mouth when he wakes is tractor (quite literally).

"What's that?  A tactow!  What's that?  Wheew?  What's that?  TACTOW!!!"

Yesterday I went to collect my car from my mechanic, who is also a farmer (Ireland for you), and he let Henry 'drive' one of his tractors!  Well, we've now created a Tractor Bore.  We will never hear the end of it.

"Where is the tactow?  Where did it dow?"

Deep, deep joy.


  1. Boys will be boys, we don't farm, but we do have tractors, I can get anything I want done if it involves my husband -on one of his tractors!

  2. Ahh how cute :) Children love tractorS :) Does Bob the Builder have a tractor??

    All things nice...

  3. My grandson is a collector of all John Deere Tractors stuff. And even got me to do a cross stitch for him. I have recently made him a file cover with John Deere tractors fabric.

  4. This is such a sweet photo. One of my own boys loved fire engines and like this once got to sit in one! Ah the innocence of youth. Thanks for visiting my blog Jessamyn, I hope you post some photos of your 1:1 flower shop soon! I need inspiration. Best wishes, Carol :)
